. >> i'm accused of a lot of things, but i don't think i'm stupid enough to go around saying this is going to be like shopping on amazon or travelocity a week before the website opens if i thought that it wasn't going to work. >> reporter: he did not dismiss a suggestion that the insular nature of his white house contributed to the failure. >> there's going to be a lot of evaluation of how we got to this point and i assure you that i have been asking a lot of questions about that. >> reporter: he addressed his personal credibility as polls show it's at an all-time low. >> i am not a perfect man and i will not be a perfect president. my pledge to the american people is we will solve the problems that are there. we are going to get it right. and the affordable care act is going to work for the american people. >> reporter: but the political battle over the president's most important domestic policy achievement is far from over, and tonight, insurance companies, the insurance industry, is raising questions about how practically this fix can be implemented, saying that it will cr

in march. in december, ahead of that january 1st deadline to get insurance for folks who don't have insurance for the new year who may be losing their insurance and then also in march because that is the end of the enrollment period for obama care. that is why, that peak in december is why it's so important that healthcare.gov the federal website for getting insurance that services 36 states is so important. you look at the numbers today, wolf, and what they show you is that there are 3 million, about 3 million calls to obama care call centers, there were 27 million unique visits to the website. you're really seeing a preference there for a lot of folks to do this on-line rather than through the call centers. >> which is understandable. let's talk about i understand you had a chance to speak with the health an human services secretary kathleen sebelius about the website. what did she say? >> this was during a conference call where she and hhs official were announcing the enrollment numbers and i asked her if she could stand by that promise by the obama administration that the websit
, he's had these prior incidents. is he a risk to the community right now? >> well, i don't know. i think the clear answer is we don't know. he has had a lot of problems with the law. three women have accused him of various kinds of improper conduct in intimate relationships. only one of those so far have led to an actual case being brought against him. he killed trayvon martin. he's been stopped by the police for driving infractions three times since his acquittal. this guy seems to have an instinct for trouble. we'll see if he winds up actually convicted this time. >> you see a similarity between him and o.j. simpson? >> well, there's a potential similarity. i think everybody remembers that o.j. simpson was acquitted in the death of ronald goldman and his ex-wife, nicole brown, and then there was a separate case. the new case in las vegas, which frankly to a lot of people, including me, seemed like a pretty weak case but there was an element, safe to say, of payback. that he got away with the first case so he was prosecuted to the max the second time and he remains in prison. this
leadership says that your vote would undercut the entire obama care law. >> well, i don't see it that way. i think any fix that we can make, particularly when a problem arises, is good for the people back home and truth of the matter is look, i'm accountable to the people who sent me here. >> reporter: the prospect of this gop vote is the main reason the president came out a day earlier with his own plan to reinstate canceled insurance policies. democratic sources admit without that, many more democrats would have defected. but the gop bill still got significant bipartisan support, and republicans were eager to pour salt on the president's political wounds. >> ask not what your country can do for you. the only thing we have to fear, tear down this wall. and our current president will be no different. if you like your health care plan, you can keep it. period. >> reporter: the president has issued a veto threat but it probably won't get that far because in the senate, there are certainly a number of senate democrats who also want to have a legislative fix, want the show their constituents bac
pennsylvania southward all the way through here. snow to the north, don't get me wrong, in the midwest, ohio, pennsylvania, buffalo, but the issue is all of this rain. the rain itself right now is just making travel miserable across the roadways. this is what new york city looks like right now. i can't find you one city street that's going faster than about ten miles per hour anywhere across new jersey and all the way up through connecticut as well. the long island expressway equally miserable. take you to one more spot across atlanta. right there, there is a now 40 mile backup trying to get into atlanta right here on the way toward braselton, 40 miles worth of cars that have been stopped. i have been tweeting back and forth with some of these guys. they have been sitting there since 11:00 this morning. so yes, it's only rain but when you crash a car or truck and this was two semis crashing in atlanta or near atlanta, you will get misery. that's what we have right here. there's the low traveling to the north. i-95 stays wet. but buffalo, rochester, back toward pittsburgh, even to ohio, a lot
to enrich because u.s. officials say they don't recognize any right to enrich, but the iranians want the ability to enrich going forward so the question has been how do they square that circle, how do they come to an agreement language that makes both sides happy. i also asked marie harf, the deputy spokesperson for the state department, that question. here's what she had to say on that. >> without getting into the specifics of the negotiations, because as you know, we don't do that, we have been very clear that no country has quote, the right to enrich. the president has also made clear that we do believe the iranian people should have access to a peaceful nuclear program. so right now, all of those issues are being discussed. what that might look like is part of the negotiation. but we have also been very clear that the goal of the first step agreement is to halt the progress of iran's nuclear program and indeed, roll it back in some key areas. that's what we're focused on now. the discussions are ongoing and i'm sure they will go well into the evening here tonight, hopefully to co
who were hurt in this particular incident. we know of two who were shot. we don't know whether the other injuries were as a result of the ensuing stampede. but he did make his way down the terminal, he got to the gate and that's when officers, both from the lapd and los angeles airport police, were able to open fire. they hit the gunman three times in the chest, center mass. he did have on him three magazines, one of them was actually in the firearm. the other two were in the clothing that he was wearing. he did go down quickly. he was taken to a local hospital, where he is being treated. he is officially in custody. we do not know his condition yet. but again, they are looking into the possibility that he was specifically and deliberately targeting tsa agents. >> as you say, search warrants are now being executed in two locations, one in los angeles and one in new jersey, is that right? >> reporter: that's exactly correct. we are being told by a law enforcement official that in fact, he was linked to those two locations, los angeles and new jersey, and just so you're aware, st
politically in america? >> even democrats don't want to do this. you have democrats who are representing rural areas where the right to have the gun is sacred and no one wants to put limits on that. >> reporter: forget about a ban on assault weapons and even lesser measures like tightening gun registration, closing sales loopholes at gun shows and more stringent background checks on mental health and criminal history are not likely to pass in congress any time soon. analysts say there just isn't the political will to do that. >> statistically, have mass the shooings increased in the united states in recent years? >> you would think with all this attention, they have. but experts say statistics say they have had only a slight tick up since the 1980s and overall, national rates of gun homicides have decreased sharply since the 1990s. a lot of this has to do with the attention paid to the symptoms, the media attention, but the overall gun violence in this country has decreased since the 1990s. >> brian todd, thanks very much for that report. by the way, the attorney general eric holder is insisti
